How to Take Advantage of Your Furnace’s Efficiency04/05/2016 Even though it’s spring, we might still see more cold temps. It’s still a great time to take a closer glance at your furnace efficiency. We have a few easy tips for you to wholly receive the benefits of your furnace’s efficiency. Change Your Furnace Filter You’ve heard this repeatedly, but changing your furnace’s filter is key. Even ENERGY STAR® advises changing it monthly. You may need to change it more or less often, depending on the manufacturer’s instructions. Air can flow more freely through your residence when you have a clean filter. You can experience improved air quality and greater furnace efficiency as well. Gathering of dust and debris inside your system will force it to work harder. Make Sure Your Ducts Are Sealed Properly If the ducts have any leaks, holes or poor connections, it’s more difficult for your system to efficiently push air throughout your home.
